Local Food Survey

The Greater Oahe Action League is doing a foodshed study of our region to find out how we can better support local farms and ranches in central South Dakota.

We need your help! Would you fill out this survey?

It will only take a few minutes and it will go a long way in helping us understand where people are getting their food and why. Thanks! After your done, please share with your friends.

Chicken Updates

Thanks to all who attended the public meeting on the chicken ordinance. We are continuing to move forward with this campaign.

Our next step is to meet and review the input we received from the community.

We meet Tuesday, Sept 8 at 7pm at 2311 Buffalo St.

You can see the current version of the ordinance at the website.

If you know someone who has questions or concerns about the ordinance, point them to our FAQs. We cover everything from “why do people want chickens in town” to “why don’t they move out of town”.

Upcoming Events

A Little Help From Our Friends

As we move forward with our local foods and chicken campaigns, we could use support to do things like mailings, buy radio ads, and pay for printing.

Our chicken campaign has a special matching challenge of $250. We need 10 people to give $25. (Or 25 people to give $10, that works too.)

Please help. Donate today!
